Welding products

Sandvik offers a complete program of products for welding austenitic stainless steels, duplex stainless steels and nickel alloys. For most standard grades there are variants with both normal and high silicon content to suit different welding methods.

Sandvik's products for welding of stainless steel and nickel alloys are characterized by chemical composition within close tolerances and consistency between heats and batches, contributing to trouble-free welding and high-quality welding joints.

Welding flux for a variety of welding methods and a wide range of applications.

The Sandvik program includes flux for:

  • Submerged arc welding (SAW)
  • Electroslag welding (ESW)
  • Joining of plates with wire electrodes
  • Stainless steel, high-alloy steels and nickel alloys

Sandvik provides two types of pickling paste for cleaning and passivating of welding joints and the heat affected zone (HAZ) in welded stainless steel constructions.

Sandvik's root flux is used for root protection when joining tubes and pipes where it is impractical to use a shielding gas or access is limited. However, the root flux does not give the same degree of protection. It can, therefore, only be used when the parent metal has enough margin of corrosion resistance for the actual application.
